Ms Meck followed this with a snap of THAT body in an eye-catching red bikini and unsurprisingly, hundreds of fans have hailed the star as their fitness inspiration.

Lucy has previously confessed: ‘I often post pictures in gym tops and stuff and girls comment and say it’s their motivation for the day- which is brilliant if I can help someone to train.’

The twenty five year old has certainly capitalized on her enviable body, creating her own fitness empire with the launch of her popular website ‘Results with Lucy’. The site sells a wide range of meal plans and video workouts to help fans on their way to Lucy’s famous figure, which has seen the star land modelling deals with lingerie brand Boux Avenue and fitness company Ellesse.

Lucy’s favourite workouts include pilates and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and we’re certainly inspired to hit the gym if it means we’ll get a body like hers…
